Ultrasonic thickness measurement

With ultrasonic thickness measurement, you may detect the thickness of individual layers within a multi layer coating.

This may be of great help, when troubleshooting e.g. a two coats / one fire vitreous enameling process.

See our webshop for more details about this and other film thickness gauges.

Automatic enameling plant for water heaters

Depending upon the annual production volume, it might be interesting to reduce labor cost by integrating all equipment of an enameling plant for water heaters and/or solar boilers.

Such integration may be done with traditional monorail conveyors in combination with automatic transfer devices, like on the picture below.

Alternatively a so-called power & free conveyor system may be used.

This conveyor type consist of two conveyor tracks above each other.

Example of power and free conveyor

On the lower level free cars may run, while via the power chain at the upper level the free cars may be (dis)connected and transported.

Nowadays there are P+F systems, which thanks to a very special transfer system even include the transport of products within the enameling furnace.

Cold enamel repairs

How cold enamel may be used to repair damaged vitreous enamel coatings.

After successfull completion of the enameling process, finished goods are typically transferred to an assembly area prior to dispatch.

During (internal) transport and assembly, the enamel coating may be damaged by rough handling.

Depending upon the degree of damage, the item is either scrapped, recoated at the enamel shop or touched-up with a cold enamel paint.

Liquid cold enamel, better known as Remaille, is typically applied with a little touch-up brush.

Cold enamel is available in 20 standard colors and for industrial users, which require more then 5 liters, it may be matched exactly to the color of your finished products.
